Leadership means choosing a direction that opens up vast possibilities to bring
out the best in others. Our Founding Fathers knew a thing or two
about leadership. They knew that the combination of a democratic
form of government and a capitalistic economy gave our citizens
the opportunity to aim high, chart their own destiny, and realize
their version of the American Dream. At a time when our democratic
rights and free enterprise system are being chipped away by the
proponents of Big Government, Frontiers of Freedom stands tall in
our defense of individual liberty and personal responsibility.
